"It’s still true that younger scientists are more likely to make a significant contribution. But it’s not because a person has more brilliant insights in your 20s, and it’s not because their ideas are fresh and unbound by old-fashioned tradition. It’s because they work harder and that’s why they’re more productive. So if you’re older, there’s still hope."

Жуйк, а ты пользуешься какими-нибудь смарт-часами?
Если да, то как впечатления? Баловство, или что-то в этом есть? Синхронизация с телефоном важна, или вайфая им достаточно? Пытались подружить их со своим календарём? Удобно?

Richard Hamming: You and Your research:

What Bode was saying was this: ``Knowledge and productivity are like compound interest.'' Given two people of approximately the same ability and one person who works ten percent more than the other, the latter will more than twice outproduce the former. The more you know, the more you learn; the more you learn, the more you can do; the more you can do, the more the opportunity — it is very much like compound interest. I don't want to give you a rate, but it is a very high rate. Given two people with exactly the same ability, the one person who manages day in and day out to get in one more hour of thinking will be tremendously more productive over a lifetime. I took Bode's remark to heart; I spent a good deal more of my time for some years trying to work a bit harder and I found, in fact, I could get more work done. I don't like to say it in front of my wife, but I did sort of neglect her sometimes; I needed to study. You have to neglect things if you intend to get what you want done. There's no question about this.


Надо срочно сменить обои в комнате, на белую бумагу, исписанную "Shut up and hack", "Do it fucking now" и прочими непонятными англицкими ругательствами. Может быть тогда я стану меньше времени тратить на всякий бред и чаще заниматься чем-нибудь полезным. -_-' Хотя вряд ли >.<

Дорогая публика, ты согласна со следующим утверждением?
Вам нужен прирост в 200%, чтобы перейти с хорошо работающей системы на новую. Вам нужен прирост в 100%, чтобы перейти со средненькой системы на новую. Если у вас есть система, работающая ниже среднего, сначала исправьте еë.
